PayNoRake.com has launched a competition designed to incentivise marketing affiliates to send it more players. The vehicle for the initiative is "The Race to $10 000" – a prize pool offered by PayNoRake to reward its most successful affiliate partners.
 
To qualify for a share of the $10 000 prize pool, affiliates will need to send through as many players as possible to PayNoRake.com. Affiliates who send through a minimum of ten depositing poker players will be listed on the Wager Profit Leaderboard, which will be updated every 48 hours, so affiliates can track their progress in the competition.
 
"The Race to $10,000" affiliate promotion runs from February 1st to April 30th, 2009, and offers three top prizes of $3 000, $2 000 and $1 600, with the rest of the pool disributed through seven other awards.
 
Winners will be announced on May 5th, 2009, and as an added incentive affiliates who promote PayNoRake.com and don't reach the top ten will still win – their players will be able to participate in a $500 freeroll.
 
Rakeback is a fast-growing part of the market that appeals to the savvy online players. Serious players who do the math quickly recognise the value, while major affiliates understand the potential for their players and their business, and see it as a win-win situation. PayNoRake claims it is the only poker site in the world solely dedicated to rakeback, and offers a rakeback structure that gives between 50 percent and up to 100 percent to each player, credited daily.
